Welcome to a blog dedicated to the work of the Albany County Legislature. Here you will find news and information about the 39-member legislative body established in Albany, New York in 1968.
I’m Dennis Yusko, an ex-reporter now working as communications director for the legislature’s majority. Democratic Majority Leader Frank Commisso has asked me to cover the work of the body and tell the public about it. My goal is to make the site useful for public officials, citizens and reporters. So here, you will be able to find press releases, notices, discussions of issues and more.
If you’d like, you can follow along on Twitter. I started an Albany County Legislature account so I can live tweet meetings and send out links from this blog.
